Either customize the renderer
OR
simple when the datatble record size is zero in COLLECTION_OBJECT, add an empty row in the COLLECTION_OBJECT inside the getter method of dataTable and set the text to "No records found" to any of the column property.

However, if you are only displaying rows, and the page is simple, I think you could get away with using the jstl tags to test for length. This tends to not be recommended, however.
